Rohit Sharma gets nervous under pressure as captain: Shoaib Akhtar, Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar says that Rohit Sharma should not have taken over the captaincy as he gets a little nervous under pressure.

Rohit Sharma took over the captaincy duties from Virat Kohli when he stepped down from the post. According to Shoaib Akhtar, Rohit Sharma has more batting talent than Kohli, but he does not seem to fit the role of the captain of the team.

Shoaib Akhtar said, “Rohit is a great guy but I don’t think he should have taken the captaincy. He gets a bit nervous under pressure”. Shoaib Akhtar said, “Rohit is probably more talented than Virat Kohli and he has all the shots but does the captaincy suit him? I often question myself.”

But he will have the home crowd behind him and has the potential to win the World Cup.

“I think the captaincy has weakened a bit since 2013. Virat used to be more aggressive at times. Rohit gets a bit nervous, the media puts a lot of pressure on the players, they make it look like India,” he added. Can’t just lose the match.

Why can’t he lose? When they lose they even taunt them, don’t do that”. India will begin their World Cup campaign on October 8 against Australia
